This is one of my favorite ways to fix deer meat.

Dust deer cutletts in flour and put them in a skillet of hot oil. Let them brown not cooking them all the way and pull them out.

Next cut up some potatos and onions and put in a roaster along with the browned deer meat. Add just a touch of water and put the roaster in the oven on 350 for about 1.5 to 2 hours or until potatos are done. Then take one can of brown gravy and mix in and put back in the oven until it is hot.

This recipe will make a fox hug a hound dog.

That deer hunter sausage , is that a breakfast, dinner or snack sausage? Sounds good.
One thing I dont quite get though, all the recipes call for equal amounts of pork, I understand needing the fat, but going 50/50 wont that take the deer taste out of it?

"Home Sausage Making" is not a cast in stone Spice Mix/Meat Mix formula for each type of sausage, there are a great many variables in making a home made sausage - the Most important is Taste - Taste (YOUR Taste!!) - If you don't like the end product - then YUK !! - change it - But - First make up a small batch of spice/mix (less than a cup so that you don't have a large amount of mix to toss out - measure out the mix in teaspoons or total gram weight on a scale, divide the total by the number of pounds you wish to make (1 pound or less trial batch) - If there is a spice taste that you don't like - leave it out - if you think it's lacking something, just add it to the mix and keep trying till you find the taste that you like (don't overdue, (some spices are Strong) - - - Meat Mix - Some meat from deer that are over-heated because of a long after run after being shot will not taste the same as one dropping in place after being shot. - (proper Field dressing is important) If you feel that the deer meat taste is over-ridden by the pork, then use less pork or just use pork fat instead - Remember it's your taste that counts !! - - Sausage can be eaten for breakfast - brunch - or whenever, - makes good sandwiches also - - the choices are endless - You can make the sausage as (fresh-fresh cooked-cured-cured and smoked-snack sticks- etc) If your are going to cure it then use (1/5 tsp per pound or 1 tsp Prague Powder to 5 pounds Meat/Mix) If using Morton Tender Quick it may make it too salty and you may have to back off to 1,1/2 or 2 tsp per pound.- it's all up to you.

One persons Great Sausage recipe may be just So-So to you !!

As mentioned above - It's all up to You and Your Taste - Taste - Taste - - - <(^@^)>

Easy sausage is:
purchase the same amount of HOT pork sausage as you have ground venison
Mix 50-50
You have thinned the HOT down to MILD (or less, if you add lil more deer)
When you fry it up there is just enough grease to cook eggs with!

Hi Opie - - If you have more questions - just add to this post topic and I will help you out if i can !

Just as a added point of information - most stores that have butchers/cutters and make their inhouse bulk and link sausage use prepared mixes and all they have to do is add the meat called for in the recipe - a package of pre-mixed seasoning will make 25 to 50 pounds depending on the type of sausage (will cost you 4 or 5 dollars per package)- use pre-mixed seasoning when possible, if you have to go out and buy all the individual spices, youll drop maybe $20.00 or so. - try making a trial batch - on your next batch you can increase or decrease the amount of spice mix, or add another spice to jazz it up - there again i'ts all up to you and YOUR taste - - Glad to help you out - - Tony <(^@^)>
